Restrictions on the Printer Driver

  • When you set up the Page Setup dialog, be sure to begin by selecting the model you are using from the Format For list. If you select another printer, printing may not be performed properly.
  • If the Canon IJ Printer Utility does not display the remaining ink level in the Ink Level Information, check whether the FINE cartridge is properly installed.
  • When the Canon IJ Printer Utility displays the Ink Level Information, close the cover of the printer.
  • The following functions cannot be used in Mac OS, though they can be used in Windows computers.
    • Duplex Printing
    • Booklet Printing
    • Tiling/Poster Printing
  • Depending on the application software that you are using, a preview may not be displayed on the left side of the Print dialog.
  • Do not start up the Canon IJ Network Tool while printing.
  • Do not print when the Canon IJ Network Tool is running.
  • If you connect this printer and AirPort with a USB cable and print, you must install the latest AirPort firmware.
  • If you are using OS X Mavericks v10.9, close the print status check window when you perform printer maintenance from the Canon IJ Printer Utility.

Notes on Adding a Printer

  • If you will be installing the Canon printer driver on Mac OS and using the printer through a network connection, you can select Bonjour or Canon IJ Network in the Add (Add Printer) dialog.
    Canon recommends you to use Canon IJ Network for printing.
    If Bonjour is selected, remaining ink level messages may differ from those indicated by Canon IJ Network.
